Message from the Board

We would all like to open Finn Camp and enjoy this weekend at the beach but Finn Camp must follow the law. Everyone has a different comfort level with the current situation and we must remember, this won’t last forever. Please be kind to one another.

As per the current executive order 2020-92:

-All public and private gatherings of any number of people occurring among persons not part of a single household are prohibited.

-No person shall conduct business operations that require workers to leave their homes except to conduct minimum basic operations.

-Minimum business operations include maintaining the value of inventory & equipment, care for animals, ensure security, process transactions (payroll), facilitate other workers to work remotely.

The typical duties of a beach manager are not consistent with minimum business operations for Finn Camp and therefore the Sun Lake Beach cannot be opened at this time. We are unable to just leave the Gates open without a Beach Manager as this is a huge liability for us all.

The Executive order allows for individuals to leave their homes to engage in outdoor recreation activity. While the gate to Sun Lake will remained locked until further notice, any member can use their gate key to go down and enjoy it. Picnic tables and other furniture have not yet been put out. The sauna building will remain closed. If you open the gate, you are responsible for closing it. If you don’t lock it behind you after entry, you are responsible for who comes in. The grounds are expected to be used only by members at this time until restrictions are lifted. Everyone is expected to follow the social distancing guidelines as defined in this executive order. The outdoor bathroom will be opened on Friday, May 22nd and cleaned daily. Thank you for your cooperation.

Fishing Derby

Finn Camp Fishing 2016

Sunday, June 12, could be your lucky day at our annual fishing derby. (This event is for members and their guests only; guests are responsible for any nonderby beach fees.) Registration ($5, including lunch; donations accepted) starts at 9:00 a.m., the fishing begins at ten and lunch is about noon. Fish for hours, enjoy a freshly cooked fish-and-chip lunch—and maybe even win first prize in the fundraiser: a portable gas grill! Tickets are only $1 each; see Kemmy, camp 153.—Kemmy Parisi

Special Membership Meeting Announcement

As discussed at the October semiannual meeting, we are in great need of a new lawnmower. To save money, the mower should be purchased before December 31. Accordingly, the board is asking the membership to attend a special meeting on Sunday, December 28, at 12:00 p.m. to vote on purchasing a new Kubota 60-inch, 26-hp Diesel, zero turn, riding mower. The price would go up 4 percent January 1. A new lawnmower will inevitably have to be purchased soon regardless. Without gaining approval for this mower at this special meeting it will cost more next year.

At least 20 percent of the membership is required to attend to have a quorum for a vote. Please make every effort to attend.

All members are urged to attend this very key meeting, at which many issues important to all members are decided. Let your voice be heard! A light lunch will be served at the break, for a nominal donation.
